Our family gathered together to celebrate 1 year of my Tita Fely's passing. As always we had food, fun, and laughs. When I was younger (as a rebellious-ish teenager), I would skip out on family functions and prioritize work or other things. Now that our parents are entering their 50's we are recognizing the importance of family and gathering - myself especially.
My mom & my titas all bonded while they were younger and they all started having kids around the same time (Adam and I - the oldest - were born in the same year). These women set the grounds for my appreciation of chosen families.
The drawn pictures are by Sammie and Josephine. I brought markers because I knew the family would be split - parents downstairs, kids upstairs where the boys are playing video games and the girls chillin around the boys.
Tita Fely we love you.
Lola I love you.
